About Rose Streaming

WHAT IS 'STREAMING'?
Think of it as a virtual movie rental. Purchase a ticket online, then have the option to watch immediately, or later via an email link. View the film on your computer or tablet, or on your TV by connecting it to your computer (see below).

HOW DO I WATCH ON MY TV?
The simplest way is to mannualy connect your computer to your TV via an HDMI cable (cables cost around $10). If you have a Smart TV you can digitally cast it onto your screen with Chromecast, Airplay or Roku (see below).

WHAT IF I HAVE A BILLING/VIEWING PROBLEM?
Because you are not streaming on the Rose site (we are simply a conduit between you and the distributor), if there is as an issue, contact the streaming platform directly. If you can't find their Help or Support info on the streaming site or in your confirmation email we're happy to help connect you! Find us at rocky@rosetheatre.com or (360) 385-1039.

Here's quick reference for our primary distributors' support teams:

HOW DO I WATCH ON MY SMART TV?
It depends on the Smart TV; there are several options:

Chromecast
-Open the movie in Chrome on your computer, phone or tablet.
-At the bottom right of the screen you should see the casting icon (a rectangle with 3 little lines in the lower left corner).
-If you don’t see that icon and you’re casting from a computer in the Chrome browser, open the menu in the upper right corner of the window (or the View menu) and select CAST.
-Once you select that button, you should have the option to select a nearby device. Select your Chromecast. If you don’t see your Chromecast, make sure both devices are on the same wireless network
-Find more info on the Chromecast website.

Apple TV
-Use AirPlay:
-Open the movie on your device.
-At the bottom right of the video window you should see the AirPlay icon (a small rectangle with a triangle at the base).
-Once you tap the icon, select APPLE TV from the list of devices
-Find more info on the Airplay website.

Roku
-Open the movie on your device.
-At the bottom right of the screen you should see the casting icon (a small square, with three lines in the lower left corner).
-Select that button; it should give you the option to select a nearby device, select your Roku.
